Seiko are after a little street cred with their latest collection of SOLAR DIVERS designed for the urban gent.

Released as a Seiko USA (web exclusive) model line the Solar Diver Street AKA Tuna Street is presented in three trendy colorways.

Choose from blue (SNE533), green (SNE535) or grey (SNE537) textured dials with matching shrouds and textured rubber diver’s straps.

All other spec. remains as the regular Solar Diver, so that's a 47mm case is constructed with an inner-stainless steel module with an outer casing in hardened black plastic. It is fitted with a curved crystal.

Divers features include: 200m of water-resistance making it suitable for scuba-diving, anti-magnetic-resistance, a one-way bezel and a screw down crown and case-back.

Power comes from a Solar-driven Driving system, the Seiko Caliber V157 which has an accuracy of ±15 seconds per month and an operating time of for approx. 10 months from fully charged.

Its functions include an overcharge prevention function as well as a quick-start function. Further features of the watch include: hands and dial markers with Seiko LumiBrite.

MSRP is 450USD. The first 100 purchases will receive a genuine leather watch pouch! Thoughts?

Seiko seem to be getting ever more fashion forward which is no bad thing as these are the same great divers only offering more diversity.
